What happened to slick, to refined and to clothes that could be worn in the real world? Can we speak of the Diane Freis number that crept in or the spider web transparent pieces or the cheesy metallics … or did I miss something here? So much of the fabric looks like a nickel a mile and even the lush embroidery looks a bit cheap and tacky.
